Fun With Friends

The Jackbox Party Pack is the quintessential party game for friendly gatherings, but the latest features online play, too. Most games need at least three human players, though some may require four or more. The only game in Jackbox Party Pack 6 that offers solo play is Trivia Murder Party 2.

The best thing about the Jackbox Party pack is that everyone can play with their devices. You don't need to have eight controllers you pass out to friends. They can connect to the game using any internet-enabled touchscreen device, including their smartphone.

Cute, But Not Stunning

Let's face it; you're not playing Jackbox Party Pack because its got next-gen graphics. Each mini-game in the party pack looks excellent, and features are easily distinguishable. The devs are also careful about font sizes – they're large and fully readable on a TV.

Gameplay - Five Party Games

Each of the five games included in Jackbox Party Pack feels distinct, which is helpful when you want variety. The featured game in The Jackbox Party Pack 6 is Trivia Murder Party 2.

The game's rules draw from You Don't Know Jack, but with a darker theme and deadly traps to avoid. Trivia Murder Party 2 is the most fleshed-out game in the pack and received the most graphical polish. The game requires players to interact much more than some of the smaller games included in this pack.

Other games included are: Role Models – This game asks players to categorize their fellow players using fun lists. Some examples include matching people to Broadway musical titles, or Monopoly cards. Dictionarium – This simple game requires players to create new words and definitions for a dictionary. Everyone writes a new meaning for the word prompt, then vote on the best interpretation. Joke Boat – This game has players use other players' prompts to write new jokes. Unfortunately, the comedy in the written jokes falls a bit flat. Push the Button – This game requires at least four players and supports as many as ten. The goal is to determine which of your friends is secretly working to sabotage the group and throw them from an airlock. It plays a bit like the online witch-hunting game, Town of Salem.

Conclusion

The Jackbox Party Pack is an excellent addition to any party where people want to play games together. Every year a new party pack is released, which features at least five new games. Jackbox Party Pack 6's best games were Trivia Murder Party 2 and Push the Button.

TL/DR

The Jackbox Party Pack 6 offers plenty of fun for gatherings. At least two games require no previous knowledge of party attendees, making it a great ice-breaker.
